I’m only really posting just to add our 5* score as pretty much everything has already been said. Clean, comfortable, courteous, good value, well equipped - what more could you want ? Oh, and only about 200yds from the supermarket one way and 100yds from a restaurant the other way. We were also impressed with the cleaning process we were... More

The owner is very helpful and courteous. He gave us lots of information and recommendations on arrival. Our two bedroom unit was quiet, spotlessly clean, comfortable with great beds. Highly recommended.

Place looks almost new. The rooms were spacious, very clean & very comfortable bed. Ian was helpful in recommending where to eat on a Monday night: not too many choices in Greymouth! We also enjoyed his suggestion of watching the sunset from the end of the seawall.

A comfortable place to stay with friendly helpful staff. We had a very large spacious room was worked for us and we needed to pack everything as were returning home. There was a laundry with a book exchange which I took advantage of and everything was very clean.

When we arrived, the owner gave us lots of information about the town and area and also booked a table for dinner for us. Our rooms were spacious and very clean. There was 2GB free wifi per device. Our rooms were close to the road but this was not a problem as we couldn't hear any traffic.

Very helpful and friendly owner. Got a lot of explanations over possible hikes and things to see. Spacious room with bathroom and well equipped kitchen. Outdoor sitting/dining with barbecue possible. New Market only steps away. So far so good. But on the first night, a group of Chinese people woke us up at night and also early in the morning... More

I didn't expect much from this place- when I reserved it, I expected a pretty average motor lodge, but I was really impressed with this place. The room was quite large, very modern, and pristine in its cleanliness. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, included all necessary amenities, and had both complimentary wifi and cable... More

Gables -excellent facility- everything perfect, excellent staff, Ian met me at trainstation for a lift to Gables. Charming atmosphere with DUKE, now 10yrs old, greeting you. Rooms to not face road, very quiet. Easy walking access to market.

I used to be mid-level executive with what was then the world's largest hotel company (i.e., Holiday Corporation) and I experienced every kind of hotel in cities all over the world. Neither then nor recently -- until now -- have I experienced a "mom and pop" of the quality of the Gables Motor Lodge in Greymouth, New Zealand. Sparkling clean;... More

Cannot really improve upon all the other reviews as I agree with them. A well kept motel with a friendly and helpful Manager / Owner. Best thing about the Lodge is its proximity to the Monteith brewery!
